Man kills wife; another injured

CHAKWAL, June 6: A woman was killed and another injured in separate domestic violence incidents late Thursday evening, police sources said.

In the first incident, a man allegedly killed his wife in Sarkal-Mayer village.

The accused, Mohammad Khan, and his wife Sonia had contracted love marriage seven years ago. For the last few months, they were quarrelling occasionally.

Mohammad Khan gave her a drink spiked with intoxicants and then strangled her. He made her death look natural, saying that she died of a heart attack and then buried her.

However, Sonia’s father knew about his daughter’s miserable life, and got an FIR registered against Mohammad Khan. Police have launched a search for the accused.

In another incident a man broke his wife’s arms in Mulhal Mughlan village late Thursday evening.
